Sorry, this product is no longer available.

Sugoi pulled out all the stops with their RSE Bib Short. Aggressive styling, ultra-comfortable Cross-back bib straps, and their most advanced chamois. No comfort feature is overlooked with these; they’ve even eliminated an inseam for reduced bulk! There’s nothing to hinder you here, no reasons to worry about anything other than your ride. Comfortable and fast: what a combo.

Anna says: I rode in this bib short two days in a row (washing in between, of course) the first weekend that I got them and I love them! The first day I rode 60 miles and the next day I rode 100 and I can say these shorts feel as good on mile 1 as they do at the end of a century. The edits that Sugoi made to the 2011 bib tight made a big difference in comfort on the bike. I am very happy to see the silicone leg gripper go as well as a slightly shorter inseam from their 2010 model. The fabric offers just the right amount of support and doesn't relax after 30 miles like some fabrics. The subtle gridded texture feels great and looks fast!

I was a little concerned when I first put them on that the straps were a little thin, however I never feel them while riding, even when I spend all day in the saddle. The upper mesh and bonus pocket will sure come in handy when it warms up enough in Oregon to wear these rad bibs without leg warmers and baselayers under a rain jacket! I also find the crisscross back detail to hold the straps securely and avoid having an upper that covers the majority of my back. It's an elegant solution and well detailed, there's no gaping or bunching of fabric.

Oh, I haven't mentioned the chamois yet! It's so right that I don't notice it, which is what I've come to expect from the best chamois, they should just blend in! The main padded bits sit directly under my sits bones and it's not too wide or narrow. I dare say it's my favorite chamois to date, perfect density, position, details, and shape.

I do have one caution regarding the care of these bibs; wash them in cold and do not dry (even on low for 10 minutes) unless you want the logos to peel. I stuck them in the dryer briefly but it was enough to cause the logos to start to detach. I don't mind it so much, but I find that these bibs easily dry out over night (even the chamois) if I hang them up inside out.

Love them

(Avid Cyclist) August 24, 2012

I have always loved the Sugoi shorts. I am tall and older, so have been a little uncomfortable with the length of the short. It's a tradeoff for the overall comfort! I'd highly recommend to any woman riding long distances.

Pros
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
Cons
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size

Almost Perfect Bib

(Avid Cyclist) September 4, 2011

Wide band at leg bottom makes this bib feel more compressive than my other bibs and the legs don't ride up. Because the straps don't have a clip, it's pretty easy to wiggle each arm out of the strap without taking off your jersey when you need to use the loo. When riding, however, the straps do feel tight on my shoulders - with my other bibs, am totally unaware of the straps. I do have a relatively long torso - if you don't, the straps might not be an issue.

Pros
  • Comfortable Waistline
  • Good for Bio-Breaks
Cons
  • Straps a Tad Too Snug
Uses
  • Long Rides
